NAC English Theatre Presentation
It’s Habs country and young Roch proudly wears his number 9 hockey sweater day and night, until it is too small and threadbare to last another season. But a new sweater, sent by Mr. Eaton himself, inadvertently puts young Roch in enemy colours and having to fight on and off the ice to maintain his sense of belonging.
Roch Carrier’s timeless tale has charmed generations of children and adults with its themes of loyalty, acceptance, and hockey glory.
Produced by the Segal Centre for Performing Arts, The Hockey Sweater: A Musical features a cast of 17, including a company of eight actors between the ages of 11 and 13 years old who sing, dance, act, and skate their way through the production.
